The Roundabout Theatre Company production of Alexi Kaye Campbell's Apologia opened on Tuesday, October 16, for its run through December 16 at the Laura Pels Theatre.


Daniel Aukin directs Stockard Channing in the role of Kristin, which she played during the drama's 2017 West End production last summer. Hugh Dancy plays Peter and Simon, with Megalyn Echikunwoke as Claire, Talene Monahon as Trudi, and John Tillinger as Hugh.

Apologia is described as follows: "You do not mess with Kristin Miller (Channing). In the 1960s, she was a radical activist and political protester. Now a celebrated art historian, the publication of her memoir threatens to split her family apart. But Kristin has never been one to shy away from a fight. Apologia is a passionate, human, and humorous clash of generations and beliefs — a lively look at yesterday's rebels living in today's reality."

The creative team includes Dane Laffrey (scenic design), Anita Yavich (costume design), Bradley King (lighting design), Ryan Rumery (original compositions and sound design), and Ben Furey (dialect coach).
